  • 5 of us were there to play in the NZ Seniors Golf tournament. We chose the house because we needed 5 bedrooms handy to golf course and relatively central in Christchurch. Worked out fine for all

  • Spacious and comfortable house with good amenities/indoor-outdoor facilities. Lovely bedrooms/bathrooms and lots of car parking onsite a bonus. Ease of booking/changes and comms were fast and friendly thanks!

  • A great house for groups, this place had more than we needed. We’d have loved to stay longer. Loved that the dining room table could fit us all for games in the evening. ( x9 ) Enough bathrooms for a large group. Great off at parking.

    Suzi Flack - Feb, 2021

  • Wonderfully spacious and elegant home, with plenty of room for our group of three couples to relax, and a large dining table to socialise around. Well equipped with crockery and glassware, so the dishes didn't need to be done after each meal, and comfortable mattresses! Nice that toiletries and laundry powder were provided, along with a couple of umbrellas; very thoughtful.
